Try and find this board if you can - the GD Movie soundtrack saw it fit to chop up the brilliant second set suite and give us what they deem is best.
To be fair, seeing the Weather Report Suite live at the Winterland on the DVD release for the movie is a lot of fun; one of the last times it was played in its entirety; this will, in my mind, remain Bobby's greatest composition.
But set II is where it's at here - from Seastones until the end of Morning Dew we have an unbroken 75 or so minutes of music - a masterful musical movement, mostly jazz, as easy as you please. It's worth an official release but listening from the Seastones buildup to the final passages of 'Dew' is the way to go, IMHO. So don't give 'em the satisfaction by purchasing the soundtrack.
BTW, I know the GD movie is a big cult fave, but is anyone else disturbed at the way Garcia, as editor and director, sees his own band onstage? I mean, jesus, the emphasis on that flare-paper dude and the interpretive dancing is flabbergasting. I can't stand watching the movie for that reason - I much prefer the outtakes, where the emphasis on that ridiculous dancer gal is muted.
